Enjoy the smooth and light taste of this classic German Black Lager brewed with four types of malt (Schwarz, Munich, Cara Munich and Pale), Hallertauler Perle hops from Germany and the care and experience from the only German brewery in the Rocky mountains. Schwarzbier is mild and balanced and its moderate alcohol content of 4.8% vol. makes it perfectly suitable to be enjoyed year round. Come, all you dark beer fans, and enjoy the Dark Side of Bayern with Bayern Schwarzbier and experience again why German beer has the reputation as the best beer in the world.

Draft pint at the brewery taproom. Very dark red with virtually no head. Nice round roasty flavors, though. Lightly cooked caramel, dark fruity, delicious dark lager. (#2928, 5/19/2007)

Great dark suggary aroma and a slight roasted note. Very nice flavors throughout with a lot of emphasis on the carmel notes. Ends with light roasted flavor. Leaves the mouth a little dry at the finish. Could use more body.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a very deep brown nearly black color with a tiny fizzy tan colored head. The head fades very fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest lightly toasted malt smell along with some cola and caramel smells. Along with these aromas are some lighter earthy and herbal smells, creating a decently roasty and somewhat sweeter smell overall. Taste – The taste begins with a rather sweeter flavor of some caramel and molasses as well as a little bit of a roasted malt flavor. The roasted flavors grow slightly more intense in nature as the taste advances to the middle with the caramel and molasses growing slightly stronger as well. At this point a little bit of a earthy and herbal hop taste work their way onto the tongue, leaving one with a moderately roasted and decently sweetened flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is on the thinner to medium side, with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly lower side. For the lighter abv. and the sweeter tastes the feel is quite nice, making for a rather easy drinking brew. Overall – A rather decently big flavored brew at a lower abv. of only 4.8 %. A tasty one to try if you get a chance.

Skyview (5345) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
On draught at the Bayern brewery’s tap room in Missoula, Montana. Pours a clear cola cramel colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, flowery hops and a touch of bitter apples. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied with some flavors of tart fruit, dried dark pitted fruit and some citrus zest. Finish is slightly multi-grain gritty, dry with an average bitter aftertaste.

reebtogi (4956) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
Pint on tap at the brewery listed at 7.6%ABV but the label here matches the beer I sampled. Anyways, pours black in color with some red highlights. Aroma is of chocolate and grassy hops. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with some roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A nicely done brew for the style and definitely recommended.
